Although the big summer stadium shows have passed, the musical season isn’t over for visiting artists. And for some fans, the best is yet to come. December will see the return of two favorites for Israeli audiences – Canadian superstar Alanis Morissette and American alternative rock pioneer Mark Lanegan.

Seven-time Grammy winner Morissette will perform on December 3 at Tel Aviv’s Nokia Arena, the final date of a worldwide Guardian Angel tour to promote her seventh album Havoc and Bright Lights, released earlier this year.

Morissette, who performed in Israel for the first time in 2000, burst onto the music scene in the 1990s with a raw-edged indie pop sound exemplified by the international hit “Ironic.”

While not achieving the commercial success of her earlier albums, the 38-year-old singer-songwriter, who two years ago married rapper Mario ‘MC Souleye’ Treadway, has continued to release excellent albums and has branched out as an actress, appearing in several TV shows including Weeds.

Ticket prices for the show will range from NIS 199 to NIS 699 for a premium package, which includes parking, refreshments and an invitation to the official party marking the end of the concert tour.

There won’t be any official party a week later on December 10 when Mark Lanegan takes the stage at the Barby Club in Tel Aviv. Just a lot of good music. Lanegan, the brooding but gifted founder of American grunge pioneers Screaming Trees, will be promoting his seventh solo album Blues Funeral.

“I’m excited to return to the Barby in Tel Aviv. Over the last few years, I’ve made it a goal to play in Tel Aviv on every tour and I can’t emphasize enough how much enjoyment I get from performing for an Israeli audience,” said Lanegan in a statement.

Lanegan last played here in late 2010, as part of a duet with Belle and Sebastian’s Isobel Campbell.

He’s also performed here multiple times with Afghan Whigs’ leader Greg Dulli in their side project the Gutter Twins. Ticket prices for the Mark Lanegan Band show will range from NIS 150-180.
